Dancing along the Ocean Line

I see you’re dancing along the ocean line

Just following that horizon line

Not sure on whether or not to ride the waves on out

Tell me how the dance is along that ocean line

Just remember it’ll all come naturally just like that ocean line

I see that the dance is becoming harder by the wave side

I hope that you’ll get over that wave before you break the fall

I see you trying to find the peaceful horizon line

But afraid to make to go

You’re not alone in this dance along the ocean line

Oh my, we can give it a try

There’ll be a beautiful horizon light amongst the ocean line


Is that what it’s like?

For years, I always had headaches 24/7 being around 7-8/10 constantly. Until the other day. It seems as though certain things do work to help calm them down or completely go away. Well it completely went away and it feels great not having to deal with one. But now the medication is slowly starting to wear off 😦 and my excitement slightly fades.

Ames Fire-Article Compilation

Information below is from The Parkersburg News and Sentinel and WV Public Broadcasting,

PARKERSBURG — West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has declared a state of emergency in Wood County as a result of the former Ames plant fire, and Wood County Schools will be closed a second day because of air quality concerns.

Justice’s declaration will allow additional resources to be mobilized to address ongoing issues created by the fire, according to a release from the governor’s office.

“Multiple State Agencies have been involved in assisting Wood County since this terrible fire started on Saturday,” Justice said. “We are committed to making sure this disaster continues to be addressed and therefore I am issuing this declaration so that essential emergency services continue without interruption.”

Wood County Schools officials announced all schools, including the district office, will be closed Tuesday following a meeting with EPA representatives and emergency responders.

Superintendent John Flint said officials indicated atmospheric conditions Tuesday would be similar to Monday, which caused smoke from the Ames plant to stay closer to the ground. Firefighters are still working to sift through debris and douse hot spots, and the smoke cloud could be smelled throughout the city and seen for miles around.

The Williamstown-Parkersburg Catholic high school football game rescheduled for tonight at Stadium Field has been postponed again, due to air quality concerns related to the fire at the former Ames property.

In addition, a pair of regional soccer finals scheduled for Tuesday at the field have been pushed back to Wednesday, Wood County Schools Superintendent John Flint said.

Heavy rain temporarily halted work at the scene of the fire, which started early Saturday morning. The rain helped knock down some flames but also intensified the smoke.

The Mid-Ohio Valley Transit Authority announced today that it will offer free rides to anyone with respiratory issues and/or the elderly affected by the plant fire to the emergency shelter at South Parkersburg Baptist Church or any safe residence within the city limits of Parkersburg or Vienna.

State and local officials continue to work to determine the contents of the former Ames facility as smoke still billows from the ongoing fire there.

Lawrence Messina, director of communications for the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, said there were no Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Forms filed for the site. Also known as Tier II reports, the forms are submitted annually to local fire departments and other emergency response agencies to help them plan for and respond to chemical emergencies, he said.

“We have yet to identify any law or regulation that would have required this property to identify its contents to a state agency or program,” Messina said via email.

Wood County 911 Director Rick Woodyard said officials at the scene have a book of Material Safety Data Sheets listing characteristics of potentially toxic chemicals at the site, but it is not known if all of those listed in it were being stored there at the time of the fire.

The Wood County office of the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department has closed for the day, along with multiple downtown businesses including Highmark West Virginia, due to the fire and changing weather.

At the scene of the fire, heavy rain this morning helped douse some of the remaining flames, but intensified the smoke.

Wood County Schools officials have yet to determine whether schools will be open Tuesday; but West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission officials have confirmed two regional soccer finals at Stadium Field Tuesday evening are planned to go on as scheduled.

Wood County 911 Director Rick Woodyard is advising people to keep away from the site of the ongoing fire at the former Ames facility in south Parkersburg.

There are not as many onlookers today as when the fire started Saturday or on Sunday, but becasue of weather conditions, the cloud of smoke from the fire is closer to the ground, affecting air quality, officials said.

Firefighters from West Virginia and Ohio continue to work to keep the fire under control and get it extinguished, although the latter is expected to take multiple days.

Tankers from Silverton, Harrisville, Salem Township and Newport, among others, have delivered water to the scene this morning.

Multiple backhoes are at the site in an attempt to move debris and provide better access to remaining hot spots.

The state has committed money to assist local agencies with the costs of fighting the ongoing fire at the former Ames facility.

Donnie Adkins, with West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s office, and Senate President Mitch Carmichael informed Wood County commissioners of the financial assistance this morning.

Area agencies and businesses began announcing closures late this morning due to air quality concerns stemming from the ongoing fire at the Ames facility in south Parkersburg.

Wood County Magistrate and Circuit courts closed this morning, and the Wood County Public Defenders Office announced around 10 a.m. it was in the process of closing.

American National University announced it would be closed today. West Virginia University at Parkersburg had already cancelled morning classes.

Community Bank sent out an email announcing it’s downtown branch would be closed this morning. Several area businesses also were closed this morning citing air quality concerns.

What We Know And Don’t Know

Wood County is under a state of emergency as an industrial fire continues to burn at a warehouse just outside Parkersburg city limits. Gov. Jim Justice joined state and county officials to discuss ongoing efforts to put the fire out and to address residents’ health concerns.

Still, a lot of questions remain about the incident and how it might affect residents of the surrounding area. Here’s what we know (and what we don’t know):

The key is getting the fire out. But even that is a question.

Weather patterns continue to be cooperative in terms of response efforts. Heavy rains in and around Parkersburg on Monday knocked a thick plume of smoke and concentrated it closer to the ground. Tuesday morning’s weather brought some relief. As rain moved out, the smoke thinned and headed upward — away from the scene of the fire.

Even with a decrease in the plume’s size and the dissipation of the smell of burnt plastic, incident commander Mark Stewart, of the Lubeck Volunteer Fire Department said there is still no timeline for extinguishing the fire.

With the fire still burning, private firefighting and hazmat firm Specialized Professional Services, Inc. of Washington, Pennsylvania, remains at the scene with local responders.

Officials are still not sure what was in the building when the fire started.

County Commissioner Blair Couch said that a warehouse owner handed Stewart a three-ring binder of material safety data sheets. Couch and other officials said that information is outdated and, thus, may not accurately reflect the materials stored at the facility as of Saturday, when the fire began.

“We’re hoping for the property owner to complete his evaluation. He said his paper work was in the building that is no longer there. Now he’s going through e-mails to get a bill of lading — trying to figure out what they had shipped out,” said Couch. “We have heard from certain industry insiders that have said, ‘We know that’s not there because we never sold them that.'”

Larry Messina of the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety also clarified that state and county officials are trying to obtain recent bills of lading that would show materials that have shipped to and from the facility. He said the owners have told state and county officials they are trying to track down those documents electronically via archived email.

“It’s going to be a little bit of time,” Couch said. “I know there’s just so many people with concerns, me not the least of them.”

So far, officials say air testing shows no signs of health hazards.

Gov. Jim Justice said at a Tuesday morning news conference that air-quality testing from the West Virginia Department of Environmental shows that 150 air samples are below a 1,000 parts per million threshold when tested for carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine and ammonium.

A representative for the state Department of Environmental Protection said those monitors had at one time been placed right next to the blaze. He said those readings detected levels higher than the 1,000 ppm level and were repositioned to more accurately reflect the air quality being consumed by the community.

County officials have also contracted Arkansas-based environmental consultants Center for Toxicology, Environment & Health to monitor air quality.

The owner of the property has a history in the area.

According to DEP-issued consent orders, Intercontinental Export Import, Inc. has been cited in March 2015 for failing to provide monthly water pollution reports to state regulators. According to its website, IEI is a subsidiary of Sirnaik. The West Virginia Secretary of State’s office has a “Warehousing and Storage” company chartered in Wood County under the name Surnaik Holdings of WV, LLC.

IEI owns five warehousing and storage facilities in Wood County, according to county and state officials. The DEP says IEI have been the owner of the facility that burned since 2004.

Officials failed to provide information about whether the other facilities have been inspected since the fire.

Governor Justice said he nor other state or county officials are aware of the insurance policies obtained by IEI and to what degree their coverage might help with reimbursing the cost of the response, including any law suits that might be filed against the company.

“We don’t know the extent. Now we’ve tried we’ve tried to figure that out. We do not know the extent of the insurance coverage whether it covers all liabilities or whatever,” said Justice. “And, actually, you know this is a private entity and everything and, for all I know, the ownership is trying to do the right things and work in a positive way from what I know today.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The West Virginia State Fire Marshal’s Office is has been on the scene of the fire since Saturday but has yet to determine a cause.

In a Monday evening news conference, officials from the West Virginia State Fire Marshal’s Office said in 2008 there was an operational sprinkler system at the facility.

Thoughts of Las Vegas Massacre 2017

US History

May all those who lost their lives may rest in peace
May the proper actions take place afterwards

~10PM, Sunday, October 1st, 2017, Route 91 Harvest Festival, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

SourcesABCNews,CNN, Washington Post,

What seemed like the typical festival going on in the Las Vegas strip and everyone having a good time and enjoying a concert until one moment: non-stop bullets was shooting into the Route 91 Harvest Site from the 29th Floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel from the corning block. During this festival, there were hundreds of attendees. There are at least 59 people killed and 527 injured, currently confirmed and could possibly rise.

The suspect is a 64-year-old, white, Mequite, Nevada resident Stephen Paddock who stayed at the Mandalay Bay Hotel during the time of the event that had brought the numerous (23) firearms (pistols, handguns, and rifles) and an ingredient used in explosives (room and car) mostly found in his room. At this point in time, the motive is unclear. They also found 3 cameras, 2 in the hallways outside his room, and 1 looking through the door. After this happening, he had taken his own life. It is believed that he acted alone.

According to CNN, Paddocks brain was autopsied and there was “no abnormalities.”

Las Vegas Shooting Gofundme


I think this a saddening and horrific moment in American history and will ever remain to be a part of the dark histories that will always be remembered. We will not forget this event like past similar events. I know in American culture, people like their weaponry and right to bear arms but will this or future events like this change the way things will change in the distant future? Will it change to where other countries are doing?

I wonder the backstory and why this person decide to do this act? Did something go wrong or did he have some sort of mental breakdown?


  1. How could this ever happen?
  2. How could this guy get so many weaponry into a hotel?
  3. What kind of security or security policies does this hotel have?
  4. What is the motives?
  5. What is the shooters background?
  6. Was this an act of terrorism?
    1. Terrorism is defined as any act that can cause terror amongst a group of people in an certain area.
  7. Was there more than one shooter?
  8. Will this affect the way we have the right to bear arms?
  9. Will the right to bear arms change or be more restrictive?
  10. How will history or culture change for the better?

This post will be updated once more information is out to general public

A Look into the Unknown

There are many things in this world that cannot be explained or yet explored. Yet, the sciences and math probabilities are able to explain some of the things going on but not all. Could it explain what is in the deepest depths of the ocean, what about the strange space, earth, and human anomalies, why we can't explain cold cases or missing person cases that are never reopened, what happens when something or someone goes through a black hole in space (hypothetically speaking), and etc? There's so many questions left to be answered.

It's an exploration race of knowledge beyond our capabilities which we are slowly learning more about and who knows what point of time it will take us to get there. It seems like there are a lot of dark subjects that haven't been shown the light of day and dedication to be worked into so we know the Earth and Space more and what we are capable of. It seems like there maybe a lot of curious minded people who are wondering about what the future holds and the mysteries and tales of the past, present and future.

What will the future hold? Will we discover what lies in the parts unknown and the tales of our own planet?

Love all, nothing less

Some of you remember one of the blogs posted not too long ago explaining why we're only human and all lives matter. This is similar and if listened to we can all live in a better society. We can all live to dream that this will come true. So, beyond this paragraph you can decide if you want to read further.

When looking at multiple news outlets, there are those standing up for equality for rights and fair treatment. There are still a lot of maltreatments and corruption going on out there in the world. But, how far is enough or too much? Well, that's a million dollar question, we may never actually know.

We should spread care, love and kindness to all. We should not hate, corrupt, and evil from the world. We're all human, there's no sub-humans. Yes, we're all different colors, have different religions, culture, sexual orientations, political ideas, and etc but that doesn't make us (humans) any less than one another. History happened so we would not hope to be repeated in future history.

Would there ever be a time when there is going to be a time of peace and no violence?

I ask you for simple thing.
Will you love the people around you? Will you help stop the stigmas and violence going on in the world? Can you help the world become equal for all those who reside in the world?

Remember to love one another and be kind to your neighbor.

NO means NO

     When you tell someone no it should mean no. You can tell anybody no or turn down any situation. No should mean no not yes. Yes should mean yes not no. Why can't people comprehend that?


     It does not mean that the person has that some sort of unspoken permission in doing something that is not needed or against the other person's will.


     For example, if a man is trying to get lucky and is not taking no for answer. So, he picks a random girl that may be willing to give some time to give to the desperate guy but she decides things are not exactly normal about this guy and a lot of red flags are up and waving around. She tells him no numerous times and he isn't taking no for an answer. She leaves the location and he follows her and decides that she "deserves it" and rapes her. He says she "deserves it" because of her outfit. She didn't "deserve it" because she clearly told him no and her outfit was not skimpy and was covering the majority of her skin, she wasn't acting desperate as he was, and was not being flirty or that interested in the people hitting on her. Was she a victim in this case? Yes, she was, she never asked for this to happen for her. The guy got away after he was finished with his task.

This is probably a bad example but was trying to make a point


     This also can go along with so many other situations as well. If a person doesn't feel comfortable with a situation or being around a person or group of people. It is OK to say NO. Just follow your intuition and instinct or that gut feeling. You are the one who is in control of your own life. Things will fall into place and you will find your true self and figure out who your true friends are.


Remember to love one another and treat others the way you want to be treated.


Remember if you don't feel comfortable with a person or situation. Do what feels right and say no or leave.
